During the 15th century in Florence, civil and religious authorities started to give more attention to issues of infancy and childhood, and were showing a greater awareness to differences between age groups. In this social environment confraternities of children, adolescents and older youth came into being. These associations, heterogeneous in terms of social class, were not only set up to give religious instruction but became one of the principle forums for the development of male identity.
